I have anxiety. I still get antsy. I still get nervous. My mind still races. Too many things to do. The other night I woke up at 4:30AM worrying that my groups of travelers wouldn’t make it to see Machu Picchu because of something I screwed up. The computations in my mind started running… 100% […]
What do you do when it’s the middle of the winter and you’re on a boat in Belize, cruising around the crystal blue oceans with some awesome people? You get some introspective discussions about life, passion, and why you do what you do. “Why aren’t we doing the things that we know we should be […]
You’ve been lied to. So many books have been written on minimalism, yet it simply doesn’t work for so many people. We all know deep down inside that less possessions doesn’t necessarily lead to a happier life. Why? We all want more stuff! Depriving yourself makes you feel repressed, guilty for wanting things, and […]
It’s too hard. Figuring out what is holding us back takes too much work. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get out of your own way? Get rid of the things that are holding us back and hack your mind to be more productive, less stressed, and happier? Wouldn’t it be great if we could see […]
Hey guys, here’s the deal… I’m going to start things off by sending you an update on what’s going on in the Under30CEO community. Today, I’m sitting in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica where this place is feeling a lot more like home. Since November, we’ve brought 10+ groups to Central America, here on our Starter […]
Hey guys, Matt again. I hope you enjoyed my honesty yesterday in An Open Letter to Under30CEO Readers. It was really amazing to hear the tremendous outpour from our readers. Instead of disappearing into the jungle like I usually do, my first step is going to be better communication with you. Today, I’d really like to discuss the […]
Hey Under30CEO, as you guys know 2.5 years ago we started a travel company because we realized that there was a lot more to life than just sitting behind a computer working. After a pretty wild ride taking us everywhere from the glaciers of Iceland to the volcanoes of Bali, we’ve now brought hundreds of […]
It’s the challenge of our generation. But is it too late? So many of us have joined the establishment. We were duped into thinking a college degree meant something. We’ve been tricked into debt, justifying it as an investment in our futures. Now, most young people feel that they have to join the “real world”, sign […]
I’m currently homeless. It’s really not a good look when women ask me where I live. I’ve set foot in six countries so far this year and it’s only January 10th. Wtf, I ask myself? How do I stay sane? How can I create a home away from home that keeps me grounded, healthy, productive, and […]
Last week one of my best friends asked me a simple question: “Do you think people can be taught to have presence in a room?” After years of studying human interaction, public speaking, hosting events, and looking at things unconventionally, here is what you need to know… Let’s start with confidence. Want to captivate a room? […]
